Day of Difference

Posted on: 05/01/2018

At GTS, on the 23rd February, Year 10 will be taking part in a Day of Difference.  We want the pupils to experience areas of life that they may not understand and to realise any prejudices they may hold.  We have a range of speakers so far but would like a few more.  These can be from the world of work but also from charities or people who have come through their own issues such as addiction; mental health problems or homelessness.  We would also like any LGBT people to come and speak to the students about their experiences. 

Two particular areas we would like to address is one where the young people get to meet some older people from our community and anyone who has moved from another country to North Devon. Past students would be wonderful but not a necessity.  It would be for a couple of hours in the afternoon.

If you are interested could you please email Mrs Tanya Tillier ttillier@gts.devon.sch.uk and let her know what you could offer. Thank you.
